Celebrating 25 Years: A Thank You from Time Timer President, Dave Rogers

Posted by Dave Rogers on

To our friends, family, customers, and loyal fans:

Time Timer has come a long way over the past 25 years. What started as a one-woman show in our family garage has grown to help students, parents, teachers, and professionals around the world. My mom, Jan Rogers, didn’t anticipate the far-reaching influence of her invention as she assembled those first timers after my sisters and I went to bed each night. In my mind, she is a soft-spoken hero; a true game changer.

I had a front row seat to mom’s moment of inspiration — my youngest sister wanted to grasp the concept of time, but transitions hit like bombshells and the ominous “five more minutes” warning wasn’t much help. Whether it was time to get ready for school, do homework, attend practice or go to bed, she often felt frustrated and anxious because of her inability to grasp the concept of elapsed time.

Motivated to solve this universal problem, Mom created the Time Timer — an innovative, simple time management tool designed to “show” the passage of time using a patented red disk. As time elapses, the red disk disappears — making common routines at work, school or home stress-free and enjoyable.

Today, the Time Timer red disk is a globally recognized time management resource that helps people of all ages, abilities, and cultures “make every moment count.”

We’re regularly stopped at trade shows or conferences by avid fans who can’t wait to tell us their story. Throughout 2019, we’ll bring more of these stories to life, so if you have a Time Timer story to share – please do! If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that Time Timer has impacted lives more than we could have ever expected. Submit your Time Timer story to timetimer.com/YourStory.

Your stories inspire and motivate us to keep thinking of new ways to make time tangible as we look ahead to the next 25 years.

From Jan’s garage to you — our Time Timer family — thank you for your time,

Dave Rogers, President
